We can see that the s and pz orbitals are totally symmetric to the operations of the C3v point group as they remain unchanged after the operation. Hence they have A1 symmetry.
The px and py however do change upon application of C3v operations. They are affected equally and hence are degenerate. They have e symmetry, shown above.
